Once they showed clips of the interview at the ballpark with Carrell in them you knew he'd be back. And he brought his wife.

Creed killed it at the end. Not in a bad way.

I haven't watched a full episode since Season 6, but I had to watch the finale. I still remember seeing the commercials for the pilot episode. If I'm not mistaken it was on the same night as "Joey" which was supposed to be the next big thing for NBC which is weird to think about now.

The writers did an excellent job covering several character plots and subtleties that even someone who hasn't watched it in years like me wouldn't feel like they were lost. Glad to see Dwight gained control of the office, was blessed on his wedding day by his mentor Micheal and best friend Jim, and married his workplace sweetheart Angela. Excellent finale, just excellent.

    Gabe needed closure.


Gabe pathetically begging Erin for another chance (when Andy hired he and Pete's exes) counted as closure enough, I guess. I have new respect for Zach Woods after seeing that amazing outtake of him (clearly improvising) mocking Dwight's arms and just cracking up Rainn Wilson and Jon Krasinski.

All I needed were Robert California and Charles Miner and I woulda been good to go!

Amazing finale. Once HIMYM goes off the air, I don't think any of my long-running TV favorites will be left. =(

What about Dave Freakin' Chappelle coming out of obscurity and popping up on The Office?

Thanks for all the responses. I was kinda bummed about how little buzz there was on the 'net after the show aired.


Now I'm wondering what a Simpsons finale could even be like. How do you put a neat little bow tie on THAT?

Because he didn't?

I think there's a LOT of over hype about this finale. The only part I really felt was sweet was the appearance from Joan Cusack as Erin's mom.(then they killed the gag with Ed Begley Jr)
They've seem to have forgotten over the past three or four episodes that Angela was a bitch. She's all huggy and mushy with the people in the office that she hated for all these years.

The Ryan and Kellie bit was dumb.
Toby crying was dumb.

The Creed bit was amusing, but not his best stuff by far.

The only laugh out loud moment for me was Meredith complaining they never showed her getting her Counseling degree.

The show changed when Michael left, and I was one of the few who enjoyed the post Michael Scott era, but this finale was garbage and was just one big let down.

As someone who just left my office of six years, this hit me harder right now than it would have at any other time. Its a finale that is remarkable in that it solidly ended the show and gave every major character some sort of note to go out on that made sense.

OF COURSE Ryan and Kelly would wind up back together. Kelly being mature enough to marry Ravi was out of character for her. And of course if there's ever a follow up they won't be together in a year.

Creed stole the show in the way that Creed always does.

I loved how Erin was the last to realize that was her mom talking to her.

I want Jim to be my Best Man.

I'll miss not having this show to watch on Hulu on weekends to come this fall.

Would've liked to see things a little happier for Toby.

The last three episodes were outstanding, loved every bit of them.

Someone mentioned that Angela went from hating everyone in the office to missing them/being happy, you need to look at it from the perspective of when she had that one conversation with Andy; "don't let your ego get in the way". It was a huge moment for Angela, she had truly hit rock bottom at that point. She still had some "Angela" moments ("I wouldn't know, I never lived with a gay man"), but that was the start of the progression of her character. Her marriage to Dwight further solidified things.

Micheal's role was splendidly done. Just the right touch.


Really liked how they handled Dwight, especially with him and Jim becoming honest-to-goodness friends. The Dwight/Pam dynamic has been there for a few seasons, but Dwight/Jim finally reached that point where one would be satisfied. The "guten pranks" gradually being one upped from each previous one, and finally with "I'm firing you so you get severance". His final talking head was money.

Actually, all of the talking heads were great. Andy's was solid. Dwight talking about the relationships he found while working there was wonderful. Jim and Pam's was of course good good.

Really, the last three episodes brought about great closure. I haven't watched much since "Good bye Michael", but this truly seemed like a wonderful send off for these characters. The arcs all got tied up, and I'm a sucker for happy/sappy endings. Every character pretty much got something happy:

Dwight: Dream job, wife, a godfatehr for his son (ps; he has a son), friends.

Angela: Husband, friends,

Darryl: Successful job.

Andy: Dream job, gave a commencement speech.

Jim: Helped others achieve their dreams, getting his own dream along with Pam.

Pam: See above.

Michael: Happily married, with enough photos for two phones.

Erin: Meets her parents.

Stanley: Retired in Florida.

Kevin: Has his own bar.

Nellie: Now has a kid.

Ryan/Kelly: Well, I guess.

Think the only one who didn't get a happy ending was Toby. Who is Toby.

Everybody wanted him to come to the bar at the end. That's as happy as it was going to get for him.

Count me in the 'love it' category. My only question: Will Tony rub it in the ESPN bosses faces for the Hannah Storm incident? Didn't see either Assault or the Ted Williams one.
